The iNLP Center’s NLP Training & Certification (NAADAC CEU approved) was developed in part to assist coaches and counselors. Addictions counselors face special challenges when working with clients. Our years of experience working with NLP and the substance abuse population has allowed us to create a unique learning experience for you.
We teach NLP in the way it was developed, as an exploration of subjective experience, and apply the methodology to working with substance abuse clients. You’ll read, watch, listen and practice the steps to all the classic NLP techniques.
You will also discover that NLP offers an amazing new paradigm. The perspective, fluidity and structural way of understanding others could change the way you practice counseling. When you see people through NLP filters, new opportunities for intervention arise that you would never have noticed before.
Another benefit of our online NLP Practitioner Training is that you get to work at your own speed, on your own time and with live access to a trainer that you can speak to whenever you need.
Once enrolled, you’ll create a user account in our online school where you get lifetime access to your NLP certification modules and personal development programs. You can start working on your certification in as little as five minutes from now!
There’s no expiration on your course. You can also start whenever you like and complete it at your own pace. The average completion time is around 80 hours. However, there is no time limit for completion.
When you finish the course we’ll mail you a professional certificate accredited by the International NLP Association and the Association for Addictions Professionals via US Mail, at no additional fee. Or, you can request an electronic copy be emailed to you.
We’ll also issue your NAADAC approved CEU’s for license renewal purposes.
Module 1 – What is NLP?
NLP Fundamentals: Your Mind at Work
The NLP model assumes that intervening with regard to a client’s mental and emotional states, personally held beliefs, and direct behaviors can create an opportunity for change. Given the chance to help, an addictions counselor would do well to discover the structure of internal experience that currently motivates toward using and away from sobriety. Once this internal structure is known, with NLP skills, shifts can be made to improve the client’s outcomes.
Module 2 – Representational Systems
Understanding representational systems allow the counselor to use the language and non-verbal communication to connect more easily and build rapport. As you know, clients experiencing addiction issues particularly those who are court ordered may be less trusting and more resistant to any form of counseling. These methods can help you connect more quickly.
Module 3 – Creating Rapport
The first step for the counselor is developing a relationship with a client; change is unlikely to occur without it. We also know that building rapport and establishing trust with an addict can be particularly difficult. Observing eye movements and listening for predicate phrases is a good beginning. Using nonverbal communication skills such as matching and mirroring may help a counselor connect with even the most resistant clients.
Module 4 – Your Mind Set
Your mental and emotional state, or mindset, is the lens through which you view the world and make behavioral choices. The greater the number of states available to you, the more options or resources you have. The role of a counselor is to help a client access a state that provides more problem-solving resources.
Module 5- Strategies, Decision Strategies, Motivation Strategies
With NLP strategies, we discover how clients use visual, auditory and kinesthetic phenomena to make decisions and motivate themselves. Each individual processes information a little differently. Yet, the VAK model is common to everyone. Here, we’ll use the VAK model to break down mental processes that are dysfunctional and put them back together in new, healthier ways.
Module 6 – Meta Model
The basic principle here is that people end up in pain, not because the world is not rich enough to allow them to satisfy their needs, but because their representation of the world is impoverished. Correspondingly, then, the strategy that we, as practitioners, adopt is to connect the client with the world in some way that gives him richer choices.
Module 7 – Exploring Submodalities, Making Something Important, The Map Across, The Swish Pattern, Fast Phobia Cure
Submodalities are often referred to as the building blocks of internal experience. They do not refer to what the client is thinking as much as how they are thinking. By exploring Submodalities, the client learns to de-intensify or intensify certain thoughts, memories, actions around the addiction. This can be a valuable tool when working with them and their loved ones.
Module 8 – The Milton Model
/Process Instructions Exercise, As If Frame
When a counselor tells the client exactly what the goals are to be and how to attain them – they may not be right for the client – they may resist. However, if he or she is allowed to discover the goals and how to accomplish them on their own there is a better chance for success. The Milton Model is used to make access and use hidden resources in the mind.
Module 9 – Outcome Specification:
A Formula for Manifesting
An outcome for ceasing to use should have nothing to do with the problem itself but should be intrinsically motivating, highly pleasurable, and work to strengthen behaviors that mitigate the addictive behavior. The Formula for Manifesting can be taught when the client genuinely wants to be addiction free and wishes to manifest positive outcomes in that regard.
Module 10 – Perceptual Positions
The Perceptual Positions Module is designed to explore various points of view that surround an issue between the client and another person.
Module 11 – Reframing Meaning Six Step Reframing
Reframing helps the client identify the positive intention and purpose behind the substance abuse or addictive behavior, and to consider healthier ways of meeting those needs. Giving a client the flexibility to change the way he/she sees something, can provide an opportunity to achieve the outcome of less use or no use more easily.
Module 12 – Intro to Timelines
The timeline exercises bring the positive past into the future. It may be manipulated to change the meaning of events that occurred in the past and to set a new path for someone, particularly with addictive behaviors.
